For some people, the change in seasons would be accompanied by a change in moods, but for the worse. There is just something about a lack of sunlight or perhaps even with a bleak outlook for a few months that will send the human body into a spiral of depression. Pocket Sky from Austrian healthtech-start-up Active Wearables intends to prevent that, where it is touted to be able to put a stop to the likes of seasonal affective disorder, jet lag, or even shift work disorder. The Pocket Sky is meant to be worn like a pair of glasses for just 20 minutes daily, and it tips the scales at a mere 12 grams so that you will not even know that it is there, enabling it to blend smoothly into any lifestyle.
Courtesy of its unrivalled diminutive and unobtrusive look, the Pocket Sky is easy enough to be worn anywhere and anytime. This helps one facilitate personalized, highly effective routines, where its soft blue light will be able to help improve the wellbeing of the individual as well as vigilance through the suppression of the production of melatonin.
Pocket Sky will upend the way biologically active light is consumed, bringing with it the potential of helping out many millions worldwide who are negatively affected by disturbances of their body clock. Being able to be charged without the need for any cables via a stylish looking cradle, the Pocket Sky will be able to offer up to a couple of weeks’ worth of battery life on a full charge, making it ideal for travelling or commuting. Available from February 2019 onwards, this seems to be the ideal gift for someone who works shifts that are constantly changing, as well as for frequent travelers who skip time zones like a skipping rope each month.
